Dog blamed for death of his master up for adoption if he has no rabies – Gullas
Several netizens have shown their intention to adopt 'Spike'
MANDAUE CITY, Cebu — Several individuals have expressed their interest to adopt Spike, the dog who was blamed for the death of his master in Talisay City.
In an advisory, Mayor Gerald Anthony “Samsam” Gullas said Spike is now under the custody of Dr. Hope Dejadena, the OIC City Veterinarian, because of the need to place him under observation for two weeks.
Many interested to adopt dog
“Kung mahuman gani ang two-week observation period ug walay signs nga naay rabies si Spike, he will be up for adoption,” Gullas said.
(If the two-week observation period will be completed and there are no signs of rabies in Spike, he will be up for adoption.)
“Daghan ang nichat nako nga interested nga gusto mo-adopt ni Spike. Nalipay intawn ko nga nagka-interest mo ni Spike but his adoption can wait,” Gullas added.
(There are many people who chat with me saying that they are interest to adopt Spike. I am happy that you are interested in Spike but his adoption can wait.)
Vet will assess if dog is ready for adoption
While under observation, Gullas said, the city veterinary office would also have to assess Spike’s behavior to check if he would be ready for adoption.
“If tinood ang gipangsulti sa uban that Spike was heavily abused by his master, it will take some time before he can adapt.But don’t worry, daghan willing moadopt ni Spike if safe na,” he said. (If it is true what others say that Spike was heavily abused by his master, it will then take some time before he can adapt. But don’t worry, many people are will to adopt Spike if he is already safe (to be adopted).) READ: ‘Horrific cruelty’: PAWS to sue security guard for hurling dog to death
Saddened by death, offers condolences to family
Gullas said that while he was saddened by the death of George Mayol, the matter was now being investigated by the police.
“It was truly unfortunate that the incident had happened. I offer my condolences to the victim’s family,” he said.
Meanwhile, pet lovers posted on social media to call on the police to dig deeper into Mayol’s death. They said that it was a very convenient excuse to immediately point a finger at Spike on the man’s death.
